Summer Resorts 2003: Boyne USA, Michigan

Mtn Summer 0503

Summer at Boyne USA is inextricably tied to the quest for the perfect golf swing. Super Five Golfweek schools combine instruction with unlimited play on the 11 courses and 162 holes of Boyne Mountain, Bay Harbor and Boyne Highlands. With layouts designed by Robert Trent Jones, Donald Ross and Arthur Hills, there is no more hallowed golf ground in the Midwest.

If your short game falls apart, trade in your clubs for a fly rod and cast for brookies and browns along Boyne's three-mile private preserve on the Boyne River (guides are available for resort guests).

At Bay Harbor, stroll to the croquet lawn for yoga by the bay. Enjoy the ancient discipline while gazing across expansive Lake Michigan. Maintain your mellow groove with a visit to the Spa at the Inn at Bay Harbor, where a jasmine & ginger body scrub will wash away memories of slices and shanks.

Once you're relaxed, head to the Beach House restaurant on the shores of Deer Lake at Boyne Mountain for a sunset patio dinner. Don't forget your putter-an 18-hole practice green is steps away.
